Burying the cables in nine main streets in the city is on track and should be completed by the end of this year.
Five years ago, the government approved 11.6 billion baht for cable laying in the tourist cities of Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Nakhon Ratchasima, and Pattaya.
Pattaya received 3.1 billion baht for three phases of work. The first stages of construction include North Pattaya, Central Pattaya, part of Sukhumvit Road, Soi Buakhao, and South Pattaya.
From September, all cables on Pattaya Klang to the beach will be laid underground, as well as on 3rd Road from Pattaya Klang to Bali Hai Harbor and on another part of Sukhumvit Road.
